McKinney: Design-a-Dino Coloring Contest


June 6 at 9:00am to August 5 at 5:00pm
Sample Dinosaur Coloring Sheet

Many children draw dinosaurs and wonder what their drawing would look like in real life. This summer, the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary will bring these childhood dreams to life through our new Design-a-Dino Coloring Contest.
As the Heard prepares for the 11th anniversary of the Dinosaurs Live! exhibit, children ages 12 and under will have the opportunity to submit their own original coloring designs for a chance to have their artwork replicated through a custom paint job on one of this year’s exhibit dinosaurs—the Stegosaurus. The winning artist and two runner-ups will also receive multiple other prizes.
The contest will begin at 9 a.m. CST on June 6, 2016 and end at 5 p.m. CST on August 5, 2016. All submissions must arrive at the Heard by 5 p.m. CST on August 5th. This contest is open to all children ages 12 and under. For rules, participation instructions and a link to the downloadable coloring sheet, please visit www.heardmuseum.org/designadino. Copies of the coloring sheet will also be available to pick up at Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary during the submission period. Three judges chosen by Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary will choose the winning drawing from all eligible entries received. There are no entry fees for this coloring contest.
About Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary
Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary was founded in 1967 by Bessie Heard. Miss Heard was 80 years old when she saw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, this private 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is dedicated to bringing nature and people together. This mission is carried out through education, particularly of young people, which emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation. For more information, visit heardmuseum.org.
